Through my practice I have learned that my hoop isn’t just a toy or prop. And it isn’t about how many hooping tricks you can remember or put together at one go. My hoop, just like my yoga practice, is an extension of my being and myself. And just like in yoga, it is all about tapping into that meditative state of creative flow and allowing your inner child to come out and play. :) I admit, I don’t always hoop and practice how much I should or used to. I’m still a beginner and I will always be a student of the universe, life, #yoga, and my #hoop practice. 🙏❤️💕

Pigeon pose on the beach! Do you love it as much as I do? 😂 Whenever I teach this pose, which is every class (at least some version of it), I feel like there’s at least one student mentally cursing me. And I totally hear you! (Pun intended) It’s a tough, deep stretch, that goes beyond the body and into the core of our emotions and releases all that stress and guilt we carry in our hips. It’s truly a transformational pose, if you ask me. But I sure learned how to love it over the last few years of my practice. I don’t think I would be a runner and cyclist today if it wasn’t for this pose. It’s just so freaking healthy, that’s why it ‘hurts’ so good. If your hips or knees don’t feel the most comfortable in this pose, there are always variations. I love doing it in the sand, it gives me wiggle room and isn’t as deep. .

Day 15 of #SizeDoesntMatter is #Runnerslunge. It probably seems funny that we're beginning a week of hip openers with a pose that's really focused on hamstrings, but protecting and stretching your hamstrings is really essential if you want to work into deep hip openers like #ekapadarajakapotasana & #hanumanasana. I am always challenged to not round my back in this pose. It's more important to stretch your torso long across your extended leg, pushing your heart forward, rather than rounding your shoulders and upper back- even if you can't extend very far. I like to hold this pose for several breaths, really breathing into my hamstrings and hip flexors. It's also really helpful if you think about LITERALLY breathing oxygen into the physical body parts you want to open. I posted a modification on my blog, as well as a video transition into #monkeypose. Click the link in my IG header to check it all out!

Been having a few wonderful days in a row! I’m tapping in to my ability to recognize that some days will be dark, and some days will be light, and what a waste of the light to not stand in it! I am filled with love and gratitude to my community. I have 33 days left in Colorado 🤪 and I intend to make them pure gold! Yoga has saved me, and I am looking forward to making this month about clearing out all my unneeded material bull shit so that I can make space for spiritual clarity a deeper practice. My heart is open, and I embrace inevitable change. Namaste, earthlings. 👽🔮🐉

Hey, this is a great result for me. Backbending so deeply wasn't easy for me, but this is what means constant practice, passion, and devotion.
Practice, and all is coming 🙏💘

For day 6 of #yoginisempowered I choose #pigeonpose or #ekapadarajakapotasana for any #heartopener . Why do we need to open our heart ? Because by opening heart, we can learn from our mistakes. However, when you open your heart, you have room for growth, forgiveness, and change .
Happy practice dear all my yogis friends 💗

DETAIL + DEPTH | This week's Peak Pose is a complex, asymmetrical pose. Asymmetrical poses tend to be less accessible than symmetrical poses, particularly for beginners and those learning to feel and move their body. Eka Pada Rajakapotasana 1 consists of: ⁣
•Knee flexion, external rotation, and hip flexion with the front leg⁣
•Hip extension and knee flexion with the back leg⁣
•Spinal extension⁣
•Shoulder extension and elbow flexion⁣
Start this practice with an attainable, symmetrical pose like Baddha Konasana. This version is done on a chair to receive back support through the back bar, when seated upright. One can also get a similar benefit against the wall. The added height of taking the pose from the chair seat, however, offers a welcome feeling of flight, while bringing the hands on blocks and adding flexion to the pose initially increases the difficulty. Work to keep the inner feet/big toe mounds pushing into one another, as to train the foot and inner leg for what will be beneficial in the peak pose, One-Legged King Pigeon Pose. For those with a lot of flexibility, press the tailbone forward and gently lift the pubic bone. If appropriate, continue in stages by adding pelvic flexion and bringing the hands onto blocks. Stay and breathe. ⁣

Vamos abrir o Anahata Chakra!! Nosso chakra do ❤!
.
Existem ásanas (posturas), como o da foto, que trabalham essa abertura! Mas também podemos incentivar esse chakra usando a nossa empatia e compaixão para com os outros Seres!
.
Algumas formas:
- doar seu tempo ao outro
- se mostrar presente e aberto
- ouvir sem julgar
.
Vamos tentar?

I'll be missing you, my Warriors of Love... But it's time to go... Thank you for all your trust, Love and commitment.

I’m here to learn, to observe, to love. Life is full of mystery and unknowns, but that doesn’t mean you stop! 🛑 •

Each thing we experience is an opportunity to learn, observe or love. If we are to evolve into higher consciousness, this is the next step beyond fight, flight or freeze ✋🏻 •

Where can you start this journey of learning, observing and loving? Great question 👍🏻 The answer is inside of yourself!


You hold all within you, dig deep down and slowly, it’ll be revealed. Your deepest questions will be answered and lessons beyond your wildest dreams will fill your heart! ❤️ •
